Be Mine, Acceptance Letter! XOXO

Once upon a time but not so very long ago, a heartbroken writer was rereading another rejection letter and wishing for a way to connect with the right literary editors and agents; those who would love and accept the author’s work—and not swipe left.

But making a literary love connection is not easy.

(At the local coffee shop, aptly named “Sip-mittable”)

Writer: (Making lovestruck goo-goo eyes) You look amazing! I can’t wait to take you home to meet my family, friends, neighbor who said I’d never amount to anything…

Acceptance Letter: Whoa, slow down! I’m not that kind of letter!

Writer: Why are you being so elusive? I’ve even tried speed dating to get your attention—sending out submissions willy-nilly to everyone and anyone in hopes that something would click!

Acceptance Letter: Sorry, quantity doesn’t make up for quality! This isn’t Tinder!

Writer: So should I play hard to get? Just send out one or two submissions when I feel like it, twice a year?

Acceptance Letter: No, that’s just as bad. It shows your lack of commitment.

Writer: Sigh. I guess you’re right—I have nothing to show for my efforts but a pile of rejection letters. Maybe I should forget the literary dating game and just become a hermit surrounded by stacks of unpublished writing.

Acceptance Letter: Sweetheart, I can tell deep down, you’re a good writer. Let me give you some advice: Hire a professional matchmaker.

Writer: You mean like Match.com?

Acceptance Letter: No silly, WritersRelief.com! Writer’s Relief has been successfully matching writers with the right literary agents and editors for almost twenty-six years. No tricky love potions or bouquets of flowers needed!

Writer: And then you’ll be mine?

Acceptance Letter: (Smiling coyly) The odds will definitely be in your favor…

So the writer submitted work to the matchmaking mavens at Writer’s Relief for consideration. And they could tell…this writer had potential.

The Writer’s Relief strategists—aka publishing cupids—targeted the writer’s work with pinpoint accuracy to the literary editors and agents who would be a perfect match.

And not too long after, the writer began a serious relationship with acceptance letters. They’re seeing each other on a regular basis.
